Two recently announced business strategies show that Web3 is in mind for innovation and diversification.
The first of these strategies is: Spotify IslandIt integrates the number one music streaming service with one of Generation Z’s most popular gaming and metaverse platforms. Roblox.. From early news, this approach looks as much a social fan hub as artist branding and content gamification. From the “main” island, users portal to a theme-based experience that promises to interact with artists, miniquests / games, and access to exclusive content.
The first theme island to be released at the end of spring is K-Park, the location of “Everything K-Pop”.
In-game virtual products are also being teased as part of the new ecosystem. For example, a user can explore an “audio oasis” to collect “like” icons and use them to collect / exchange metaverse goods. From now on, individual artists, labels and specific releases should start living in the Virtual Islands.
With the promised integration of Spotify Sound trapIt’s an online digital audio workstation that I’ll explain in a few minutes, but I’m not sure why Web3DAW couldn’t be used in a virtual world to create licensed remixes / NFTs of theme artist content. In the context of the Roblox gaming environment, it may be traded / sold from collaborations, contest / prize bases, Roblox compatible marketplaces, or one of Spotify’s own creations.

Execution is parallel to collaboration between sound.xyz And OpenSea. Currently, only a few artists have access.In the first report from Music allyThe response of some subscribers is similar (less receptive) to the response of the gaming community to the Epic Games LOOT NFT Marketplace.

Spotify Island’s sound trap integration has the potential to change the game
Spotify acquired the web-based DAWSoundtrap in 2017. With some creative implementations, the feature can become a Web3 content creation tool.
We use the term “game changer” from the perspective of a metaverse-based digital audio workstation (DAW) that is associated with your Spotify / Roblox account and is used to create, store, and tokenize new media content. For example, buy a pass that gives you access to the stems and unique samples of themes and featured artists.
At that point, there’s no reason why you can’t control your audio using a new interface compatible with Roblox’VR World’. Would you like to use a DJ deck or spatial object that can control the volume and position of the sample along with the other behaviors of the sound trap?
The DAW interface allows you to save all your samples and your time of use, as well as your selection of custom mixes such as automation and effect processing. Basically, you have a saved Soundtrap project that you can repackage as metadata and use to play anything created by yourself or other authorized users within Spotify Island.
Attach this metadata to your token to create an NFT!
If the music metadata created this way is encapsulated within a virtual world, you can handle loyalty tracking. Of course, access is via Spotify Island, but you can also use your custom mix within the new one and keep the reverse path to all copyright sources.The “nested” music NFT conundrum that came up Snoop Dogg mixtape It may be possible to fix this scenario.
